I had the problem concerning the connection between a 32 bits middle
tower and a 64 bits laptop. Both uses RTAI-3.6
A netrpc release is available in Magma CVS which allows distributed RTAI
applications on any x86.
I tried it and it works fine now.
Nevertheless, I compiled the Kernel(2.6.17) and RTAI in 64 bits mode on
Hope it helps you.

Objet : [Rtai] Netrpc communication problem
after upgrading to a new laptop, I experience problems running my
software. The original and working setup was:
* One dedicated realtime PC running an interface task (besides other
1.4 GHz Pentium M,
* One laptop for monitoring (connecting to the interface task via
netrpc and exchanging data via mailboxes):
1.7 GHz Pentium M,
After getting a new laptop, I used the chance to upgrade to RTAI-3.6.
The new setup is:
* Same realtime PC now with kernel 2.6.22 and RTAI-3.6
* New laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad T61p):
2.2GHz core2 duo,
kernel 2.6.22 (i386),
Now, when connecting to the remote PC, the program freezes. I traced
the error down to
RT_TASK* iftask = (RT_TASK*)RT_get_addr(node, port, "IFTASK");
I tried to run the realtime process and the monitor process on the
same laptop. The local connection is still working alright.
Might there be a problem connecting from a 64 Bit to a 32 Bit
processor (although there is 32 Bit Linux installed on both)?
I'm slightly panicing so any help would be very appreciated.
